Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cool Whip Frosting

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Whipped Frosting

These cupcakes are delicious!  My husband declared that they were his second favorite thing I have ever made (right after my chocolate chip cookies)

    For the Cupcakes
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • For the Frosting:
  • 1 Carton Cool Whip Vanilla Frosting, thawed
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  1. For the cupcakes, mix all ingredients together until completely combined. Fill cupcake tin with paper liners. Fill liners 2/3 full. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. In a large bowl, mix cinnamon and nutmeg into the thawed Cool Whip Frosting, folding with a spatula. Pipe onto cupcakes.

Hint: these little buggers will stick to the cupcake liners. I tried some without the liner and baked them for a few minutes less. 

Warning: you will want to lick the entire bowl of frosting...or maybe just double it so you can have some left over and keep in the fridge for emergencies :) The frosting would be amazing on pumpkin pie or any other Thanksgiving desert. 

OH SO GOOD!  Keep them in the refrigerator.
Hope you enjoy!
